Overview: Intrinsics for ItaniumŪ Instructions

This section lists and describes the native intrinsics for ItaniumŪ instructions. These intrinsics cannot be used on the IA-32 architecture. The intrinsics for Itanium instructions give programmers access to Itanium instructions that cannot be generated using the standard constructs of the C and C++ languages.

The prototypes for these intrinsics are in the ia64intrin.h header file.
